October 23, 2016 is the Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel and Jesus! The United Nations votes, with a decision to make Christians and Jews try to “think” there are no Christian or Jewish Holy Sites in Israel.

THE DOME OF THE ROCK, mocks THE ROCK! And you think GOD does not hear? What laws doth the religion of unbelief in GOD, mingle with its policy of uniting CHURCH AND STATE?

October 23, 2016 The Abomination of desolation points us back to Israel and the Two Rocks.

Mat_24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Mar_13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

The interior of the Dome of the Rock, is the threshing floor purchased by David the King of Jerusalem. But lets hear about this fake “rock.”

Deu 32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.

Deu 32:32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:

Deu 32:33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.

Deu 32:34Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?

Deu 32:35 To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

Deu 32:36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.

Deu 32:37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,

Deu 32:38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.

Deu 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

Deu 32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

Deu 32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.

Deu 32:42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.

Deu 32:43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.

Deu 32:44 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.

Deu 32:45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel:


Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

The false prophet has spoken words against the Most High God, his holy apostles, and prophets, even Moses.

The interior of the Dome of the Rock, shows the threshing floors, purchased by David. However, the stairs go below the rock, to a cave, where grain could be hidden and stored from the invading tribes that tried to harvest the crop.

In Mecca, the false god, turns out to be black stones. In the side of the Monument to Mohammed, the black stone the Muslims run around, seeking to enter the inmost ring, they come to a window to the interior of the black stone monument. Peeking inside they can touch the black stones, said to be broken from a meteorite. This is the god of Islam that begs to be worshipped and causes his followers to bow down and worship these “black stones” and pray five times a day, from the call of the Minarets through many lands.

What a disappointment for pilgrims to Mecca to understand, their god, are broken rocks fallen from heaven.

A friend of mine piloted the planes to Mecca with the devote saving their money, for the pilgrimage to find, their god, is inaccessible to women, and few touch the black stones without a great personal sacrifice of beating themselves, to the point of drawing their own blood.

When people talk about fighting over “the rock” and the rocky, pitifully small “grain” fields around Jerusalem, one in Nebraska would laugh! None of their machinery would be able to get into their grain fields! Why is the WORLD interested in the destiny of ISRAEL?

My guess it is the Government of God, purchased by His Son, to defend the Government of God, and feel the weight of its presence around the world. What man does not want peace of mind, freedom and liberty to pursue happiness?

And this peace of mind, can only be achieved by believing in the name of a son, willing to die defending His Father’s name and Government.

Which “rock” is mine?

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Dan 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

Dan 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

ISIS exposed, antichrist exposed, those who speak great words against the Most High, have worn out the saints of the Most High and they think they can change the times and laws of God? But the judgment shall sit against The Whore, the Prostitute, who begs men to worship her, THE DESTROYER, whose name is found in Revelation 9:11

Dan 9:13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

Dan 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

In 457 B.C. the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem brought the Messiah, to be the sacrifice and the daily Talmud, would cease. By 1982, the blood of their Messiah was found to have 24 living chromosomes. You can test the D.N.A. of Pharoah, but the blood of Jesus found, on the west side of the Mercy Seat, that sits above the Ten Commandments of God, written by His finger on Mount Sinai, has proven, the alien from space, speaking to John on the Island of Patmos…is no human that can survive in “our world.”

Jewish Orthodox Priests once claimed you had to have the blood of the Levite to be a prophet of God or holy a Priestly office. Today the Jews have seen they need to have the blood of Our Messiah, the Tribe of Judah, the Lion, and no one can prove they have the blood of Our Messiah, without first being grafted into His vine, his life, his suffering.

And it is said, that those who have taken the blood of Jesus Christ, experience a heavy load of suffering; like, when they see an accident, the victim is as if, it is their mother, their sister, their father, their son!

Who could walk on earth, with a mind of compassion and love that extends to every human, and even the devil himself? Abraham had to watch his son die, for his sin, of not trusting in God. Then Abraham got to feel THE HAND OF GOD, denying him the right TO DESTROY HIS SON! GOD would bring the RAM, the lamb planed to be the only SACRIFICE…to redeem man from this planet!

And its all about which rock you want to worship?

And its all about a prophecy that spans from 457 B.C. with an effort to rebuild and restore the image of Jesus, in mankind.

Rev_3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, andthatthe shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Praying this prayer, to buy gold from Jesus, and become “rich” and to receive His Robe of His Righteousness, then naked man sees with eyes of man who is not blind to the abomination of desolation, that just occurred THIS YEAR over the ROCK, worshiped by the religion of unbelief in God The Messiah.

The voice of experience repeats, every time I make this prayer, to buy gold from Jesus, I am humbled to see I am the one who must be broken. . .or like Lucifer, I would attempt to seat myself upon His Throne, and make the sin of attempting to read the heart of man by his outward appearance, while GOD looks upon the heart!

This opening of our eyes, to see the abomination of desolation in our churches, in our leaders, in ourselves, is the requirement to KNOW…I am not God! I do not want HIS PROBLEMS! I prefer to bow down and worship the one who can create and can destroy the trouble maker…Lucifer!

THEREFORE: I REJOICE…the final conflict over which archangel has won the conflict of ages…to be the Archangel…who leads His Children out of Egypt, out of suffering, off this earth to His heaven…is My God, the GREAT I AM who speaks to all today, who wish to avoid the plagues set upon those who mock “THE ROCK.”

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

The Great Whore has been exposed, as The Destroyer, and no man can fight this battle, we must vote to be on the side of God! Or if we decide to vex his Holy Spirit, then we see the GOD OF MOUNT SINAI STAND UP!

Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.

Isa 63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?

Isa 63:12 That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?

Isa 63:13 That led them through the deep, as an horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble?

Isa 63:14 As a beast goeth down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD caused him to rest: so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name.

Dare we resist His Holy Spirit? Dare we deny the truth of our leadership, that resists and denies the Spirit of Prophecy and Testimony of Jesus?

 Dare we deny the Holy Spirit and cease to rest? Have we all gone to sleep?

 Remember the bride maids…all went to sleep…but some had oil in their lamps!

It’s time to wake up Jesus is coming!

Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

The “rock” is shifting the wheat from the chaff…and NO PLACE WAS FOUND FOR THEM….the “stone” that smote the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

How can GOD DO THAT?  WITH MIRACLES LIKE THE ONES THE ANGELS CLAIM, to enjoy…when they pulled the wheels off of Pharaoh’s Chariots, when they tried to cross the Red Sea.  The Chariot wheels are on display in the Cairo Museum, with 4 and 6 radiating rods, from the center of the wheel, they are archeological proof of God moving the Children of Israel, through the Gulf of Aquaba, to the real Mount Sinai in ancient Persia, now Arabia…the place where Moses fled to feed the flocks in Mideon, and marry his wife.

On the day the High Priest entered the Most Holy, on the Day of Atonement, each high Priest was allows to ask the angel there, one question. It is recorded that one High Priest asked the angel, what was the most fun you had as an angel? The angel said, “Pulling the wheels off of Pharaoh’s chariots.”

Then one angel might say, closing the lions mouth, so they would not eat Daniel!?

Or, walking in the fire with Jesus, one like the Son of God, with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego?

Angels are very real, just as evil angels are very real. One is your best friend the other is your worst enemy.

To make the evil angel go away, say these words. “I am saved by the blood of the lamb, Jesus Christ is my redeemer.” repeat these words, until you see the devil and his angels, do not like to be reminded, they killed the one, who could have set them free, from eternal death.

My mother used to say, and she knew they by experience; The devil can’t be where the name of Jesus is. She even found the Ouija Board would not work, when she stepped inside the room in Evergreen, Colorado. She brought the spirit of Jesus with her, and when she and her friend Martha stepped back out of the room, the Ouija Board began to move again.


Voices from Orion and the Horse Head Nebula

REJOICE over her, thou heaven and ye holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her. The devil is being exposed, as the source that vexes mans soul but God’s son, paid the price, to recreate those who die defending right!

3:39 am December 28, 2016 Good Morning America! I am told to R-E-J-O-I-C-E post 9-11-2001.

Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Rejoice over her, the whore, the enemy of God, know better by the name of Satan in Revelation 9:11

Rev 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. In English it is the same, Gods enemy is THE DESTOYER.

Why rejoice over her, the whore, the enemy of God called “The Destroyer?” On 9-11-2001, the VOICE OF JESUS,  explodes over the Earth, to point out the one, the unseen guest of the greatest accomplishment of Heaven, it its ROBOT, created to morph, fly, be a god, that can live forever, is now called THE DESTROYER.

The testimony of Jesus, given to His Disciple on the Island of Patmos, in 95 A.D. is certain proof to the created beings on earth, that God’s plan to subdue the earth is reached when population exceeds a maximum, that requires a Creator to extend our borders.

Trump can triumph, but he is no god. He has no power to expand his kingdom into Gods Kingdom, without the help of Our Messiah, a Jew, The Creator God, who spoke water into existence in Genesis 1:1-2

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

H2O the water of LIFE. Combined by God ordering two hydrogen molecules to unite with one oxygen molecule.

And we point fingers at man, who cannot understand, the foe, the enemy of God wishes us into Babylon, the place of confusion.

And the sage sat within the forest, alone, with God, and wondered how God could convince created beings, to not try and sit upon His Throne? Then it occurred to man, that Gods plan, would bring created humans, to see the problems. . . of being in charge. . .and having no place to expand. . .into a Universe, that has no desire for “sin” to enter into their land.

What keeps us from invading Orion, where voices are hidden behind the symbol of a 7 eyed 7 horned lamb of God, slain from before the World was created?

With symbols a very young child can learn how to feed the elephant or mouse, by their size. Given candy to feed the elephant, the larger animal, children realize the larger animal needs more food, the smaller animal needs less food. They divide their candy into more for the elephant and less for the mouse.

Then the dilemma comes, when the instructor encourages the child to eat the candy or feed the pictures of the elephant or mouse?

Christians too, find themselves, wondering who to feed? The elephant or the mouse, or do I just find the way to feed myself?

And the voices from Heaven, assure us, a sacrifice was made. . .by an all seeing God, who knows where we are without a G.P.S. An all powerful God, with loyal angels who too can morph into speeds unknown to man. And the question comes,

1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

There is nothing more convincing than evil! There is nothing worse than those who seek to destroy! And there is still a need to defend, that which is common to man, purchased by God’s son, the right to freedom, liberty, and the choice to choose, to destroy or try to mend the wounds, that the “freedom of others” employ to force our thinking….into their ways…..upon our minds…that leads to self destruction, of our carefully made body of flesh, that can be restored to perfectness, should we become willing to worship, Our Maker?

I am a conscientious objector to war. Yet, I will work day and night to fight the notion, it is easy to be a Christian, and lay down the weapons of mass destruction or just one gun, that might be used to frighten someone away.

Voices from Heaven, ambassadors from Heaven, declare the war against evil was conquered by The King of Earth, who rides out on His White Horse, to declare those who worship Him, have no fear of those who follow their leader, Satan and his angels.

With ISIS defined by Jesus, as His enemy, can He redeem you, to create you, into an angel of mercy, and forgive Him, for creating you, with a choice of which angel you want to protect and defend you?

The devil is wanting you to worship Him and his methods of mass destruction.

God is giving you the chance to see happens when created beings go VIRAL, with lies, about Him. . .that God is blind and cannot see, The Abomination of Desolation, upon the ROCK, purchased by David, to be a threshing floor for the “GRAIN.”

October 23, 2016 Man unites with man to dictate, there are no Christian or Jewish Holy Sites in Israel.

This is a declaration of WAR AGAINST GOD, issued by those whose are living under the rule of THE DESTROYER.

We are facing a religious war, that forces man to decide to try and be The Creator, or bow down to Him?

In humility, we must examine, this god, who desires us to run around his grave, and look at the blackstones, that prove, he came from another planet? See the “rocks” worshipped by those who have a religion of unbelief in God.

The righteousness of Jesus Christ is being revealed! However, some will not put His Robe of His Righteousness, they want others to see “their goodness and their mercy.”  Then they want me to “HOPE” with them, that God can change his mind about the Ten Laws that Govern Heaven. . .Think again of who has the government of God upon His Shoulders?  No man or woman with the mind of Christ, could ever destroy another man. He would rather die than fight.

And here is the fate of the Jews. . .they have to teach their children how to use their weapons, to defend themselves. Hoping the guns held by the youth, will never, ever , have to be used!

REJOICE! THE VICTORY OVER SIN IS CERTAIN, and he can and will destroy the destroyer! Can we trust, his angels to protect and save us? I say, “YES”, and death has no sting!



Why do I need to divide rather than multiply? What’s a rabbit doing in the airport?


Walter and Rabbit, Sac. Airport
By Connie Anderson – Newton, with rabbit and son in the Sacramento airport.

There seems to be a confusion in my mind, about the need to divide. Our country seems to be in rush to a civil war built on “theories” we will crash without one? Banners, slogans, and men welding signs, about this is that is not fine! Can I too be caught in the trap that division is superior to multiplying ideas and choosing the best?

Winter is a good time to rest, by the stove, and warm up to ideas, that have been told about a land were fair is fair, and right is right and wrong is no good, where justice brings criminals to see, the community can no longer spare its money on them that think, we owe them something for nothing. When volunteers spend nights, weeks and days thinking up ways to help our kids find a better way to live in community, in relationships with one another, then the very folks we aim to help, turn and destroy each other?

What am I teaching, those children at night, who come to eat and learn about a way that is right, when their leader walked and talked with them, than laid down his life, to beat the death sentence for them?

What mother would send her child out to war against the evil that decides to kill, and divide, rather than multiply dreams, that  means we have a Creator in the sky, who can create another planet, another land, but the caution,  we can live within boundaries, unless we decide to remove the President of Paradise.

The mystery of godliness is a man who comes to earth, to prove he can live again, because he is more than a created being. Jesus can multiply because He can divide the evil ones from their plan to destroy the world. So:

next time you see a rabbit or bunny tracks in the snow or mud, figure out who made them, and why he said, “Be fruitful and multiply and subdue the earth.” Wonder why God would blame us for messing up the earth, when over population seemed to be his goal at first? When we reach a mass of men, and women and children without food, we must ask why GOD would permit us to understand this is HIS PLAN.

If only we could fly to the moon and establish out posts, forts on a NEW FRONTIER…then maybe we could turn the moon or Mars, into a perfect Paradise, without a tempter, to teach us how “To Destroy.”

OH? Did I mention the third world party, led by demons, to destroy themselves and others, will never run out of men to destroy…until we ask God….to BLESS US and all who come in the NAME OF THE LORD.

LORD! LORD OF THE BEASTS AND CHILDREN! LORD OF SKIES AND UNIVERSE! LORD OF MEEK AND MILD! LORD OF THE LITTLE AND WEAK! GOD how I hate the evil thought and action that propels man to destroy man!

What? Can you send a man and woman like Adam and Eve, who have learned his lesson, this time to speak? Do “we” want WAR OR PEACE? Must we begin again with World War II, or have we learned dead bodies, and wounded, are subject to regret! And if we will regret the war ahead….could it be we will be reminded of the Egyptian Pharaoh, who thought he’d chase the Children of slaves, back into his camp…and the LORD GOD…would use his angels to pull the wheels off of his 600 chariots, before they made it across the Red Sea?

We have seen GOD in action! We have seen the golden chariot wheels of Pharaoh’s chariots. They are in the Cairo Museum! Will God not unleash the angels to divide the good from evil? Will God not freeze a nuclear bomb headed to annihilate his people?

When GOD THE LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH decides to divide Lucifer and his angels from their part in destroying  .. .GODS PEOPLE…there will be a LIGHT and HEDGE and ARMED ANGELS, man or evil cannot penetrate!

THEN you will know THE LORD HAS SPOKEN! Then you will know there is a Paradise where the will of God is that we have no sickness, no sorrow or evil! Then you will cry out…BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!  Blessed is the one who comes in the name of THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!

And we will KNOW for SURE, why we had to live in the last generation of saints, and sinners who dwell on dividing, instead of multiplying our JOYS and uniting in weakness, to become the land blessed for its GOD knows no end of cures…no end of giving us the Spirit of multiplying, because HE CAN CREATE ANOTHER PLANET, STAR or GALAXY…and spin them out of Orion, like saucers on their way to become, a land of the free and brave and live as ONE NATION UNDER GOD, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

So: the original question I had in my mind, was about this idea of finding a perfect PRESIDENT…not only for this world, but the worlds beyond, will find a hiding place that is a treasure, of ten simple rules, that guide His universe. Treasures of the Lost Ark, might be something we need to explore, what is INSIDE THE CHEST?

The Government of God is being understood in light of having dignity and respect for its Creator. Jesus is only a part of what is good about God and His Angels. Lucifer is only a created being, whose life is suspended, examined and explained by his frustration in being exposed, by something we call 9-11!

In God we can multiply, but until we vote for Lucifer and his angels to be destroyed, we will be divided by The Destroyer, and those who say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” will know which LORD, they can trust and obey!

His number is 777 and multiplied more than twice the number of Lucifer’s angels.

Why do I need to divide? I don’t! I can’t! I can’t read the minds of those who wish to divide us into a civil war?

Why do I need to multiply? Rabbits don’t do much destruction, and bunnys make funny prints in the snow, but multiplying humans, to overtake the earth, with their GOVERNMENT, built on men, who die and only live, for moment in time, is inferior to a GOD who sent his son, to live, to die and go to heaven.

Then back in 95 A.D. God sent his Son back to earth….to the Island of Patmos….to write about the Revelation of JESUS, to those who may not know – He is called THE PRINCE OF PEACE, because he can destroy THE DESTROYER, and He can create and save our world.

If nothing more, The Earth can be used as good example of what would happen if beings created to live forever….continued on earth….to destroy to the utmost or…to be saved by beings capable of living forever, who work in a coordinated way, by listening to the Holy Spirit, and abiding by the ten rules, of a good society, on earth and in Heaven, with loyalty and respect for the President.

In writing about the hare, rabbit and bunny trails we have made on this earth, it must end by our own examination of the facts. We need a good God and Creator, who can destroy evil and who can restore the land, we have come to love, because it is the place of our birth.

Those who love their birth right, have a right to fight to keep it right! And those who wish to destroy our birth right, must know, it was GOD who gave us the right, to fight in defense of HIS LOVE, his JOY, HIS DELIGHT, in finding NEW FRIENDS, who are also searching to hear HIS VOICE.


elders,  are speaking to us now…is it Moses, or Elijah, or Enoch?

Will we ever learn that “evil” is an angel who lives forever, until we give GOD the answer of WHO WE WISH TO WORSHIP…Michel the Archangel or Lucifer…

He is in charge of a complex hostile group of angels…who seek to destroy…because Lucifer tried to destroy, The Son of God, and GODS WRATH is against those who try to destroy the image and love of JESUS CHRIST!



Repentance: in humility

by Connie Anderson taken near Vail, Colorado on a trip to prove the mother can ski at the age of 60 with her son. However she did make one run, while she let her son practice at snowboarding, just to prove the old lady could do it, just as her mother did on her 60th birthday.


Often lately the thought of not representing the one I love, as the best man for me, lingers like a soft melody that sings about repentance with words that ask,  How do say, I love you, before the ice melts?

What happens when my love for my husband is misunderstood? Will I treasure the moments we meet as gems to record for years, or will I wonder if he ever knew about this love so deep and wide as the ocean? How can I prevent or repent for even a moment of thoughts that cross my mind, that makes me ashamed?

Before the ice melts another time, let the temps stay below freezing and let the weather in side be all warmth, humid and breathing like a fireplace and its cozy warmth and flickering light!

Can the spell of my parents marriage, happiness, love and tenderness be combined with humor for a life time and beyond for me and my husband?

When I found I had never written a love letter to my husband, I wondered if I could before the ice melts? Then temperature gauge hit 7 below, and no roster crowed it was so cold. And he left with his boots on to charge into the winter air before I got to tell him, how much I care. There were no cows to milk, but a legend to fulfill, when Newton hits the streets to the coffee shop to swell his image of courage and manliness, like he did so well, when he was a farmer.

I did not do as well…to break the spell of exercise in weather below zero…today I take to the rubber, that circles around and around, and watch the telly, to get up to date on what’s happening outside our world. Or, that is my plan.

Small town USA is beginning to be the extent of our world frozen in on a winter day. The red bricks that surround the city square are frozen with delight that few cars are skimming over them. The collection of trees, from far and near in the city square stretch and reach to the sky, while squirrels are seeking their hidden stash of black walnut nuts below the trees. There is always something going on, above or under the snow, but bunny tracks tell, there are others out there, and Babe the cat is nesting here with me circled up with her tail gone flat. Don’t tease this tail, or crumple her smooth fur, she all snuggled down for a nap!

If I mess with her now, I will deserve a slap! But more recently she has become used to the humor and recants with claws that retract! Her anger has turned into a pat! Maybe her change has come, because she allows for my repentance? And this is good sign, my husband too, will do the same, and allow me to be accepted into his good graces? In humility must I learn that repentance is a jewel, or feather in my cap? This I learned from Babe the cat? Who has learned to retract her claws and instead gives me a pat! Then she follows me around, to see where I’m at.

Daily Prompt: Treasure

By Connie Anderson
By Connie Anderson – Newton, taken in Nebraska, between Beatrice and Beaver City,  one spring when my son wanted to bike from Beatrice to Beaver City and he needed his mom to be the back – up crew. Who drew those lights in the muddy road? Or made an eye in the dark clouds above? Does the light reflected from the sun, send light back into outer space?


Mother nature: a mysterious treasure of legends, codes and spirits!

            Summer on the Sappa was an endless experience of exploring the prairies we know as treeless to begin with, yet those fire flies that came out at night, were more fun to chase like a party of indians more closely known as cousins, friends, brothers and sisters. The old glass canning jar that held our prey that began to shine in the dark, in my parents bedroom that night, began a series of joke playing, that began the day my Mother, put a flea in honey, along with a hair from the hired hand, under a looking glass. Then Toby pumped mothers shoes full of water, that she used to milk the cows. Thereafter Toby found the rim of the milk pail turned upside down, was full of warm milk, as mother carefully directed a stream of warm milk from Betsy’s bag as they were milking. His wet pants attested to another prank coming her way.

            This turn of events from what lured us to what satisfied our curiosity on how to share our new knowledge with others, was a healthy way of exchange and deeply entertaining. And farm folks know there is nothing quite as satisfying as repeating these stories, forever and a day! Thus: legends that began with a new way to use warm milk, or honey to stifle the movement of a flea, or wishing to tame the hired hand, to look at me, was just part of growing up in the Nebraska prairie. Live and learn. And never be afraid of making a mistake, because small towns will never die of telling what a fool they’ve been and how they’ve come so far, to know, something will happen and we all will be a fool again.

            But there was time to sit, milk, watch the cats eyeing the sprays of warm milk, begging  for us to try and fill their hungry mouths. Each cow went to her own stanchion, the place between the boards that slid in place to keep her head locked, as she ate her daily supply of grain while we milked. There was time for thinking, when I get older, I will not be having to get up and milk cows in the cold and heat, or light the fire in the stove, or listen to a roster crow or cut wood for heat.

            Somehow the olden days slowed us down, to appreciate the fire in the lantern, or the warmth of the cows belly, and thoughts of how to make the cows come to us, instead of making us chase down the cows in the pasture before we could milk them, grain them, make sure they didn’t step into the milk bucket and empty our precious food and income upon the ground.  Now you will understand why parents would inevitable say, “Don’t cry over spilled milk.”

            There are just some things in life, that happen, to the best of milking men or milking women, that lures us to a way of living that includes, accidents do happen. Don’t cry over spilled milk, because it’s not gonna be easy trying to pick it up! You will just get stuck in the mud and have another mess to clean up. Once you get the hang of some things that will never be the same again, it’s time to move on, and tie up the tail of the cow, so her nasty tail with manure and goat heads doesn’t slap you in the face again.

            Maybe we are supposed to be closer to nature? And learn from her like  mother nature, who is a treasure of information, guidance and experience. It’s -5.6 below zero and the farmer in my husband is leaving for a walk to the coffee shop, because he had to go out to milk and feed the cows, no matter what the gauge said about how cold it is out there. He said just now, “Hon, it’s time to milk the cows” his mother would say.

           Me? I’m a city kid, filled with the lure of  the man bound to keep the stock alive and bedded down before night, who will walk through sleet or storm to protect and defend his family.  And of such a man I am totally unworthy!
